Mark Harmon leaves NCIS after 18 successful seasons. What did he ask the producers before he left?
Sometimes in a series that lasts we get so attached to some characters so much that when they leave the series it seems to us that someone we love very much has left.
Such was the case with Mark Harmon for part of the audience. He announced that he would leave after 18 seasons in the role of Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
Being the child of two famous parents like footballer Tom Harmon and actress Elyse Knox, he had no choice but to become successful. Mark later learned that his parents were known to all.
During a walk in Michigan at the age of 8 with his father, a crowd of people approached him who knew and greeted him. This was the moment when he learned the truth.
Mark was very good at football just like his father but did not choose to be like him. He had bigger dreams, the scene.
He became friends with Michael Caine and JasoRobards who taught him to improve in acting.
The films in which he participated were 240 Robert, Flamingo Road, The Love Boat, and St. Elsewhere.
In 1987 he married Pam Dawber and they had two sons. For a moment he focused on the family but when he came to the role in NCSI he could not refuse.
Thanks to that role he won a People’s Choice Award in 2017 for Favorite TV Crime Drama Actor.
During filming, there was an incident with his collaborator Pauley Perrette after Mark Pitbull’s dog attacked a member of the group on the set.
Suddenly after 18 episodes, Mark decides to retire. Everyone says that his role is irreplaceable.
After so long it is revealed that Mark has asked the producers that his leaving in the series was not dramatic.
Nobody realized that he would leave until the last moment. This left the audience shocked and unprepared.
Despite this, the public loves him very much and hopes to see him very soon in new projects.
